Running a project: formal structure

Structure diagram

The Project Board has overall responsibility for the project. The Project Manager is responsible for the day-to-day running of the project.

The Project Board has representatives from the users and suppliers/technicians (e.g. computing), but is chaired by someone representing the organisation's financial interests

The Project Assurance Team provides independent assurance to the Project Board that the project is being run well. They have an audit-like role

On each stage of the project, the Project Manager may have someone to assist: the Stage Manager. The workers on each stage are known as the Stage Team
